KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28, 2015:
Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed should challenge him in Padang Rengas if he could not bring Datuk Seri Najib Razak down in Pekan.
Nazri said he hadrepeatedly asked Dr Mahathir to take on Najib in the Pahang constituency if he wanted the Prime Minister to step down.
“Pergi lawan dia lah kat Pekan dan tengok” (“Go and challenge him [Najib] in Pekan and see”).
“Fight him in Pekan. If you don’t want to fight him, then he can fight me in Padang Renggas,” Nazri told reporters in Parliament today.
Nazri was asked about criticisms against Najib’s administration, especially by foreign media and the former premier.
“That’s normal, since when hasn’t Umno kena hentam (been bashed)?
“Even I have been bashed many times but still won (in my constituency).”
